Think & Grow Rich Lessons

Like Emerson and Thoreau, you can gain a lot of insight 
on how things work by observing the goings on right 
outside the door of you home.

All living things divide all their time in 3 
activities: finding nourishment, sleep, and 
reproduction.

All day long birds are hunting or foraging for whatever 
their diets consist of. But in the early morning they 
are up in the trees singing, chirping and calling. What 
are they doing?

I’ll gine you a hint: They ain’t rehearing Tchaikovsky.

When they’re not working on their supply of nuts, the 
squirrels chatter and chase each other around tree 
trunks, across tree limbs and fences. What are they 
doing?

I’ll give you a hint: They ain’t training for the 
squirrel olympics.

Whenever they’re visible, the lizards are preening and 
flexing. What are they doing?

I’ll give you a hint: They ain’t working on their 
suntans.

The activities of plants are passive. They open their 
leaves to collect solar energy, and don’t seem to do 
much else. Their reproductive activities aren’t 
noisy...and don’t appear to be much fun.

But the flowering plants employ color and aroma to 
attract the third party agents who fulfill their 
reproductive requirements.

Similar to flowering plants, human preteens begin to 
become concerned about their appearance and aroma. Much 
of their time in the next few years will be spent on 
grooming and the selection of clothing, jewelry, 
makeup, antiperspirant and cologne.

A simple example of sex transmutation...

We employ the same techniques of visual and aromatic 
attraction in the workplace and marketplace. Even those 
is the business of sound, musicians and singers craft 
their appearance on stage and album covers to attract 
larger audiences.

For most of us, the mental and spiritual transmutation 
of sex energy does not occur until we progress beyond 
our reproductive years. But we can learn to redirect 
the energy of attraction to other pursuits as we did 
with visual and aromatic attraction.

My postscript is another expression of transmutation.
